ASTM Issues Standard Guide for Aerosol Foam Sealant

October 13, 2016

The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) has issued ASTM C1737 - 16 Standard Guide for Evaluating Temperature Effects to Aerosol Foam Sealant During and After Dispensing.

This standard guide applies to the general effects of temperature during the use of aerosol foam sealant (either polyurethane or latex types). This standard also aims to estimate the observed product dispensing character and foam quality of aerosol foam dispensed or cured, or both, at specific temperatures and standard conditions.

This guide is applicable to foam sealants for a variety of end use applications, primarily intended to reduce air movement in building enclosures.

This standard guide was released on September 1, 2016.
